Uniquely infused, ACID Opulence 3 brings a whole new blend to the ACID lineup in a rich, oily maduro.
ACID cigars are a combination of premium, whole leaf tobaccos gently infused with essential oils to create unique flavors and aromas unlike any other cigar available. The secret infusion process Drew Estate uses to create this brand has been so closely guarded no one else in the world has been able to replicate the feel, aroma, or flavor of an ACID cigar. Each blend is completely different from one another, expelling incredibly flavorful aromas that are not only unique from all other cigar brands, but also pleasant to those who are not enthusiasts.
Opulence 3 sports a jet-black, oily maduro wrapper from San Andres, Mexico that provides a rich and creamy character with a pronounced sweet nuance noticeable in the finish. This wrapper is perfectly balanced with a hearty blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos grown in Esteli, where some of the strongest Nicaraguan tobacco is grown. These tobaccos were harvested in three separate crop years including 2005, 2006, and 2007, making Opulence a rare, incredibly limited treat. Not only is the cigar infused with oils and botanicals chosen by Jonathan Drew himself, but also each individual leaf is infused to provide a full-flavored, uniquely enjoyable experience each time this cigar is lit. We really enjoy Opulence 3 here at Cigar.com. In fact, this blend may be the best ACID created to date!
I'm glad everyone's enjoying these, I enjoy a maduro but when it tastes more like incense than a cigar, the enjoyment turns into a bit of disappointment for me. I just couldn't enjoy it but truly have only ever enjoyed a flavored cigar once when it had a tequila flavor, and it's no longer made. Too bad ACID wouldn't try that!

Wonderful Cigar - pleasing smoke smell
Sep 05, 2015
Fantastic cigar and my favorite. Last long and the 54 gauge makes it extra specil. The sweet taste on the wrapper makes it enjoyable and seems to reduce any aftertaste. Several non-smokers have actually commented that the smoke has a pleasing smell. This is my single favorite cigar and almost everyone I know that has tried it loves it. One exception is that my full bodied friends who enjoy more traditional cigars don't seem to enjoy it as much as I do but still like it.

A great smoke with just a hint of sweet, full of flavor throughout. It will be a staple in my humidor going forward.

Cross-over between the big leagues and the Acid collection
Aug 03, 2015
Opulence 3 was like a fusion between the Acid line and drew Estates other more traditional cigars. It was lightly sweet on the lips and first 1/3 it was a mild to medium with a reminder of a Kuba Kuba. 2/3 was medium with maybe some leathery notes and last 1/3 was chocolate and expresso. overall good with a little tight draw
I'm new to the reviewing world and only smoked an occasional cigar for about the last two years.
I'm not a big fan of "infused" cigars but when Jonathan Drew first handed me a box of Opulence 3 down in Nicaragua, two days later I found myself with 6 sticks left. I was shocked with the blend's fantastic balance between natural tobacco flavors and sweetness. It also contains tobaccos cultivated in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Torpedo (6" x 54) The torpedo really emphasized all of the characteristics of the infused tobaccos. Complex with notes of cocoa, coffee, and sweet fruity nuances, this was a rare treat. The aroma is amazingly inviting.
Robusto (5" x 54) The draw was perfect as no "double puffing" was needed. Although a bit less complex than the torpedo, many thick notes of espresso overwhelmed the senses. Seemed a bit stronger.
Toro (6" x 54) Burned unevenly and offered a tighter draw. The flavors at the start were similar to the other sizes but this blend drastically changed half-way through. The finish was potent and strong, with some incredibly light hints of pepper noticeable in the back of the palate. The aroma, again, was excellent.
